I really love the new features installed on our community. But I am bit confused regarding this option.

If you try to elaborate on what you are confused about, chances are that the community can help enlighten you..  Wink

Was any consideration given to providing small amounts of sMerit to Newbie and Jr. Member Ranks?  In this way, those most in need of help and guidance could say thanks (give Merit) to those who assist them.  

This would also instil the concept of giving Merit to helpful posts right from the outset for the newest members of the forum.

There is downside of giving some sMerits to newbies. Suppose 1 smerit is given for a newbie account. A lot of new accounts will be registered to abuse this. For instance, someone wil make 10-15 such accounts and give merits to main profile to gain member rank. Also, they get additional sMerits in the main account which can be further abused. It is better the current way.

Finally i found details regarding Merit system.

Concern: No one can read through each and every post and then award points based on relevancy. That means many a posts will be overlooked and usually the first posts to be read will get rewarded and the later ones will just be lost even if they ended up being more useful.

I am actually in favor of this. Most of the times initial replies have already addressed the issue asked. Thereafter, members just keep repeating the same things in other words to increase the post count. So, you have to be active as well to get merit points.

What do you mean finally, the thread has been here for two weeks. If you look towards the top right there is a search feature you probably could have found it faster Wink. And yes there are some flaws to the system, but it isn't 100% concrete, admins said they would monitor and see how it goes. Make useful posts and you need not worry Smiley

This information or a link to it should be available when i click on profile merit.
Every new feature or system has a "? / help" link just a click away on the same page which explains everything about it.

I am just providing this as a suggestion so that whenever something new is added, such a help feature can be included from the beginning.

Currently i did use the top right search button, but i assure you it wasnt very fast. Plus it wasnt even the first post to come up when i did the search.

This is a forum and help information is provided in the form of stickied threads at the top of each board. Meta is the board with all information about the forum itself. The sticky Forum ranks/positions/badges (What do those shiny coins under my name mean?) links to this thread in the first lines. This thread has all the information in the OP.

Is there a thread which tracks merit-begging PM spam, or appropriate for that purpose?  Out of the numerous merit-related threads, I haven’t seen one where that would be on-topic; but I don’t want to create yet another, if an appropriate thread exists.
Slightly off-topic: I use "Report To Admin" for PM-spam (bottom-right under each PM).

This.
I believe sending unsolicited/spammy PMs can result in temp-ban (somebody correct me if I'm wrong), asking for undeserved merit is, or should be, another offence (similarly to asking for positive trust rating).

Reporting such PMs is probably way better than red-tagging. Or you could do both.

Obviously it all depends on the context of the PM.
Thanks. I have never known about those rules. You help me to avoid suddenly unexpected bans in the future.

What I see is that no one use merit.

As we cant rank up, people are going to pay a lot for high ranked account.. and its not cool.
It just add more values to accounts that reached higher rank before this update. Not rly fair.

Just look at people's merit, they only have the merit based on their previous rank (0, 10 and 100 mostly).

The idea was great, but atm its not working.  Lips sealed

Deleting all ranks would be better  Tongue


Yes.  Sounds like you have a lot of great ideas.  First, this system has been in place for a bit longer than 2 weeks, so we have plenty of information to determine that it is not working and that tweaking it is not going to work. In other words, it is a fucking disaster.  Secondly, based on the first idea, let's blow it all up, and start from the beginning.  Let's put everyone at zero.  A reset.  That will be better. 

Let's also throw all the bitcoins of the members into a pot and divide them up evenly amongst all members....   5 bitcoins each should be good enough.  Who need more than 5 bitcoins?  Price is going to go up anyhow.

How much alt coin diversification is necessary? if you are investing in Bitcoin, then perhaps 0%?

Would you also be happy if all the signature campaigns are removed from the forum ? That will make all the merits and ranks useless than right.

There are a lot of members who have received merit. If a member only has the merit based on their current rank, then there is a reason, and it probably indicates that the merit system is starting to work.

Thank you guys! You've explained everything to me better than infographics did.

Btw, infographics are useless if you just put text on a jpeg picture. That's not an infographic.
Someone who have designed skills think that making infographics help them to earn Merits. Actually, in some cases, it works, lol.

Nonsense.   Five years ago there were no signature campaigns, and bitcoin was worth a few dollars.  This forum thrived back then.

For current members, your initial merit score is equal to the minimum required to your rank. Of that, a certain amount (less than the usual half) is spendable. The spendable amount was calculated based on your current rank and the number of activity points you earned in the last year. A Legendary member who hasn't posted in the last year would still be Legendary, but would not have any spendable merit.

If someone sends you 1 merit, the 0.5 sMerit is not wasted; it is just not shown until you get another merit point.


Are you an engineer ? Because this is absolutely ununderstandable  Sad

But people would be more honest.

It may sound harsh to you but there are good chances of that happening. Here is what admin said about this recently

It's too early to get a clear picture, but my thoughts so far:

First, most people complaining about merit are constantly posting garbage, and should not rank-up. The forum is not a welfare system; you don't run through a few hoops and then get paid for doing something that nobody actually wants. I like that good forum members can make money, especially when said forum members are in poorer countries and this is a major opportunity for them. I very much do not want to destroy the sig-ad/airdrop/bounty "industry". But I am not going to tolerate people posting garbage upon garbage. If the merit system completely fails and I can't think of anything else to replace it, then my next step will probably be to completely remove all ways for forum users to make money from posting (eg. removing signatures entirely).

There were not that many members. It is true that a lot of members joined because of the monetary benefits involved and they will leave. I think admin is not concerned about those users as they do not add much value here. Judging a forum by number of members is not appropriate in my opinion as well.

So i assume the answer sadly is no.

For that beside there was no need to come up with a bad idea poorly executed. Was just enough to freeze the ranks.

Surely all the new system does is create an external marketplace for selling "Merit" (i.e. Fiverr etc)?
